This workshop, taught by writer, director, and producer Shira Levin, will explore the basics necessary for making a narrative short film, demystifying the process. If you’ve thought about making a short film, but didn’t know how to start or what to do, this workshop is for you. It will cover the tools necessary, from the all-important script to pre-production (i.e., location, casting, schedule), production, post-production (i.e., editing, music) and what comes next (i.e. festivals). Shira will share experiences from her short film productions and answer any questions you might have. If you have the desire, you too can make a short film. Bring your questions and ideas.
